Bahamian artist / author transforms pain into purpose - Apr 6, 2017 - 10:48:49 PM

Tina-Klonaris-Book-S.jpg
We all experience pain at some point in our lives. Did you know that fear stops more people from living their dreams than anything else? Fortunately, fear can be overcome by using spiritual principles, such as choosing to focus on positive intentions and gratitude.

Tina Klonaris-Robinson believes fear can be overcome through creativity. She says that painting has taught her about surmounting obstacles and leading a life of divine purpose. “My canvases begin as empty black spaces. I love using black, rather than white canvases because they remind me that in our darkest times if there is emptiness, there is the potential to fill our lives with light, color, beauty, and magnificence...

Wayne Neely is an international speaker, best-selling author, lecturer on hurricanes, educator, and meteorologist has just released his tenth book, “The Greatest and Deadliest Hurricanes of the Caribbean and the Americas - The Stories behind the Great Storms of the North Atlantic.”
